Excellent recipe, especially for seafood lovers! I took this to a backyard BBQ at my sister-in-laws, and it got rave reviews. I've been asked to make it several more times, and everyone loves it. I stirred the seafood sauce and salsa together. The last several times I've made it, I used frozen tiny shrimp instead of the canned and more of them. The frozen have better flavor, are a little bigger and a little higher quality. Also, the crab meat in the packet doesn't have as much incidental shell debris or taste like the can. Great dip! Thanks for posting.

This was a good layered dip. The salsa added a nice zip. The concensus was there was not enough seafood sauce, so I added more after it was half gone. I will make this again because it is so easy and most ingredients are staples.
